Institute for Democracy Pedagogy

On 16 January 2019, the Institute for Democracy Pedagogy (Institut für Demokratiepädagogik, IDP) has been founded. This inistitution is the successor of GrenzgeschichteDG, which was a department of the Autonomous Higher School (Autonome Hochschule, AHS).

The IDP deals with the development and promotion of democratic competencies in schools, adult education and youth work and develops its own tools for this purpose, such as games, workshops and teaching units. Further training for teachers in this area and animations for youth work are also on the program.
